Babymoon: Pregnant & Due for a Vacation

“A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.” – Author Unknown

babymoon 1Life is full of happy expectations when you’re pregnant. Whether this is your first baby or another addition to your growing family, you know that change is just around the corner. In recent years, a “babymoon” has become part of the pregnancy journey for many. A babymoon is almost like a second honeymoon before the baby arrives – a time for you to connect with your spouse and relax together. If you’re due for a babymoon vacation yourself, here are some tips to prepare for it.

If you live on Maui, why not have a staycation? Hawaii is a dream destination, so taking advantage of the beauty and activities you have at your doorstep could be the best of both worlds: saving money and soaking up world-class luxury. Many hotels and resorts offer kama’aina rates, allowing you to stay at a reduced rate. Or, you may want to explore a different part of the island and get away from the normal cares of the day. Make memories with your spouse as you hunt waterfalls (carefully, of course) and look for whales out in the sea. Hire a photographer and do a fun maternity shoot at the beach or in the woods. Maui’s landscape offers endless opportunities for capturing those special pregnancy photos.

Also, check online for special events happening on the island, such as concerts, festivals, art shows, etc.

Whether your idea of a babymoon includes time at the spa and sipping mocktails, or adventuring on a hike and snorkeling in the ocean, when you live in Hawaii the dream babymoon awaits you!
